I have to apologize ahead of time for these last few posts. I’d gone to most of where I wanted to go in Tokyo already, so I spent these days mainly going back to places I really liked. Hence, fewer new things to post photos of. Day 10 saw me back at Senso-ji Shrine:
And finally, Ikebukuro
Food of the Day (I’ll be the first to admit that the snacking got a little out of control…but it was all so delicious and fairly cheap :))
Amazake – sweet sake. It tasted just like it was supposed to – sweet, strong wine. Not my thing
Curry, soba, and rice. Funny story: I was practicing eating the rice with chopsticks (and doing just fine), but the woman who ran the shop came over twice to mime using the spoon. It’s like, I know you’re just trying to be nice and helpful, and I know I’m a foreigner, but I don’t need help to eat my food! I got this 🙂
Bikkle. Another yogurt based drink. Another disappointment.
Dotour milk-tea. The consolation prize for the Bikkle. Much better.
Misc rice-based sweet.
I couldn’t resist something called “The Pungency.” Especially when the ad campaign featured Cinderella. It turned out to just be milk tea.
Japanese Plum Monjya
Kibidango – yet another rice-based sweet
Green tea monjya
